Project Description
Setting up Forms Based Authentication in SharePoint 2010 requires updating the web.config file of three web applications.

This utility allows you to update all 3 configs in a single click. The updater can also be invoked from PowerShell.

See my post at http://merill.net/2010/12/fba-configuration-manager-for-sharepoint-2010/

Updates the Web Application, Central Admin and STS web.config files with the FBA settings in settingsXml.

Updated nodes include:
- /configuration/SharePoint/PeoplePickerWildcards
- /configuration/system.web/membership/providers
- /configuration/system.web/roleManager/providers
- /configuration/connectionStrings

Format of settingsXml needs to be as follows:

 <Config>
    <PeoplePicker><add key="fbaMembers" value="%" /></PeoplePicker>
    <SqlConnection><add name="fbaSQL" connectionString="server=yourSqlServer;database=aspnetdb;Trusted_Connection=true"/></SqlConnection>
    <Membership><add name="LdapMember" type="Microsoft.Office.Server.Secu..."/></Membership>
    <Role><add name="LdapRole" type="Microsoft.Office.Serve..."/></Role>
 </Config>
